Michael Phillips presents an interesting history of Dallas with "White Metropolis". His analysis of White, Black, Hispanic, and Jewish Dallasites since 1841 is fascinating. According to Phillips, political power in Dallas has always been partitioned on a sliding scale of "whiteness", with WASPs at the top, African Americans at the bottom, and everyone else (notably Jews and Hispanics) jockeying for position in between- a practice that is still in effect today. The evidence for Phillips' argument is overwhelming and it will be interesting to see the reaction to this book (if any) by Dallas's power structure and its critics.

From the nineteenth century until today, the power brokers of Dallas have always portrayed their city as a progressive, pro-business, racially harmonious community that has avoided the racial, ethnic, and class strife that roiled other Southern cities. But does this image of Dallas match the historical reality? In this book, Michael Phillips delves deeply into Dallas's racial and religious past and uncovers a complicated history of resistance, collaboration, and assimilation between the city's African American, Mexican American, and Jewish communities and its white power elite.

Exploring more than 150 years of Dallas history, Phillips reveals how white business leaders created both a white racial identity and a Southwestern regional identity that excluded African Americans from power and required Mexican Americans and Jews to adopt Anglo-Saxon norms to achieve what limited positions of power they held. He also demonstrates how the concept of whiteness kept these groups from allying with each other, and with working- and middle-class whites, to build a greater power base and end elite control of the city. Comparing the Dallas racial experience with that of Houston and Atlanta, Phillips identifies how Dallas fits into regional patterns of race relations and illuminates the unique forces that have kept its racial history hidden until the publication of this book.

Comments:

Reveals among other things how wealthy white businessmen promulgated the myth of Dallas as having sprung from nothing but their own acumen, and deliberately used race to keep the working class divided against itself.

Celak
The book was informative but is chronologically challenged. The author seemed to jump around time periods and made it difficult to draw a straight line from one event to the next. Also, I felt like not enough time and attention was given to Dallas in the 80's, 90's, and 2000's.

This compelling book goes a long way toward explaining Dallas's dysfunctional political machine by exposing the history and nature of its engine. According to Phillips, political power in Dallas has always been partitioned on a sliding scale of "whiteness", with WASPs at the top, African Americans at the bottom, and everyone else (notably Jews and Hispanics) jockeying for position in between-- a practice that is still in effect today. The evidence for Phillips' argument is overwhelming and it will be interesting to see the reaction to this book (if any) by Dallas's power structure and its critics. Phillips spares no one, including Dallas's current civil rights activists, whom he accuses of taking only a superficial stab at real change and minority empowerment.

Great insights on Dallas and its history!

This book has one of the best sections I have found on the role of dispensationalism in American thinking. If you don't know the term, it refers to the belief that there are specific time periods referred to in the Bible and that we are approaching the end times.

Well, turns out that the author of the book happens to be my history class teacher in college. Isn't that neat? I like to read, however history is not my strogest subject: toooo much reading. The book arrived in great condition and I'm enjoying it. There's a lot of things I'm learning about Dallas: the city in which I live. I reccommend this book to my fellow Dallasites.

Great read,gives unbiased look at hidden Dallas history toward blacks. I advise all Black-males born and raised in Dallas to read this excellent work. I would like to personally thank Mr. Phillips for having the courage to produce such a book.

Michael Phillips presents an interesting history of Dallas with "White Metropolis". His analysis of White, Black, Hispanic, and Jewish Dallasites since 1841 is fascinating. (For example, he offers a compact history of the Dallas KKK and its late 19th century early 20th century strangle-hold on city politics.)

Although he occasionally gets side tracked by the Black Civil Rights agenda Dr. Phillips tells a compelling story about how Big D emerged from a provincial Texas back-water to become a leading southern city. The book's 184 pages (paperback) are divided into 7 chapters.

As a native Dallasite, I often marveled at the city's various strange atmospheres through the 1960s and 1970s. Phillips has helped me to understand those turbulent and caustic days and nights. It's a wonder, as he points out, that the city did not erupt into murderous violence more often through its troubled history.

He provides substantial documentation, photos (20 total), statistics, eye witness interviews, and primary source documentation throughout the book. "White Metropolis'" 22 page bibliography will prove particularly helpful to future researchers.

This book is recommendable to those wanting to know more about Dallas, Texas historians, and civil rights documenters. This history of Big D earns a big A!
